Is the Sea Calling You?

One of the things I love about looking through vintage cookbooks is discovering all the charming names of desserts, like “Honeymoon Pie” and this “Sea Foam.” It’s delicious, too! Bring this treat along on your next picnic by the sea, or just enjoy at home as I did!
Sea Foam
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup water
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1 egg white, stiffly beaten
Boil sugar and water together until a little dropped in cold water forms a soft ball. Pour the hot mixture over the egg white, beating while pouring. Add nuts and vanilla extract and beat vigorously, until candy stiffens. When nearly set, drop by spoonfuls on wax paper. Allow to cool and harden.
